Reviews:"Sushi and sashimi are good. The atmosphere is lively and casual, only the service tends to be poor."
"Visited this place in December 1998 with both my daughters. It´s their favourite place. I give it a good rating. My daughter Anna likes the Hana special, little too heavy for me, however the place is worth a visit."

Reviews:"Biggest and freshest sushi in the South. Melts in your mouth!"
- Becky Zelinski ( [October 5th 1997]
"Opened in 1995 Kyoto offers Japanese cuisine at a very high level. The ´Sushi World Guide´ crew visited it and was very pleased. Openers like the ´beef and asparagus roll´ are very delicious. Three sushi chefs (Mitsuko Tanner as THE chef) behind the bar are preparing excellent sushi. Check the daily specials and give yourself a treat with ´baked salmon roll´, ´tigers eye´ and sensational hamachi and maguro."
- The Sushi World Guide Crew [November 9th 1997]
"My children live in New York City and Philadelphia and we all swear that Kyoto has better sushi. Sara (owner) was one of the first restaurants that re-opened after Hurricane Katrina and even though she has had trouble finding enough staff (she has taken to making sushi herself) Kyoto has maintained its excellence. The Sara Roll is especially good. "

Reviews:"Unbelievable! While attempting to find a place to fill my pallet for the taste of 'fish', I attempted to visit my local spot in the French Qtr - that being Samurai on Decatur St which was closed. So after a desperate attempt to locate the closest sushi bar in New Orleans I found Mikimoto's, which is, by the way, the greatest sushi bar in New Orleans! While the atmosphere is not reminiscent of the typical sushi bar or what one may consider an upscale dining facility, the food more than makes up for this. The 'staff', who is managed by none other than Jackie Chan (not of movie fame) are very nice and cordial. Kudos to Sandy for her pleasant demeanor. The place will make (design?) any sushi roll or combination imaginable. Whether it is using the local cuisine as inspiration or traditional sushi combinations. They 'Crunchy roll' (which I have only found made in New Orleans) combines tempura pieces and seafood and is the best in the city. The Boston and Philadelphia Rolls also get honorable mention. I must add that their noodle salad is the talk of the town! With it's easy location approx. 6 mins from downtown New Orleans and affordable menu (from $0.99 sushi pieces if you stay and eat inside to their $10.00 Box sushi), this is a must be stop for all locals and visitors to the Crescent City. Equally tempting is their Baked Green Muscles and Baked Salmon. Each portion of their sushi and sashimi is more than a mouth full. Hands down this is the place for traditional Japanese cuisine at an affordable price! "
- Vernon Jones [December 21st 2000]
"Free delivery and a drive-through...easily the best sushi for the money in Nola/hands down has the best crunchy roll in the city."

Reviews:"Ninja serves up wonderful, authentic sushi with the freshest fish around. The tuna tataki is exactly as it is served in Japan and the Wasabi Tobiko is near perfection. The Swamp Roll is a house original that is worth a try. The yellowtail here is always fantastic. Reasonable prices, but a bit cramped for space. "

Review:"Named BEST SUSHI RESTAURANT by New Orleans Magazine - January 2003 - Vol. 37 - Issue 4 - Page - #374 'It's right in the neighborhood, and the sushi's great,' he says. 'I go for the dynamite roll, the crawfish [with yellowtail, salmon and tuna] and the 'Rock 'n' Crunch' with tempura shrimp. Plus, they do a fantastic Ketel One martini.' -Chris Wilson, chef de cuisine at Emeril's- "

Phone:(504) 525-9595
Opened:Lunch and dinner
Reviews:"Great sushi bar in the French Quarter. If you want a change from gumbo and jambalaya (which can be delicious), go there. If you still want HOT food, try the ´Wasabi Tobiko´ (But I warn you, it can be dangerous to your health, it is HOT!!). ´Wasabi Shumai´ (pork dumplings) is a nice entree. The ´crunchy dynamite roll´ and the ´baked salmon roll´ are as excellent as any other nigiri or roll. Carry out and delivery."
- The Sushi World Guide Crew [November 9th 1997]
"I want to emphasize again that ´Wasabi Tobiku´ should only be ordered by those of you with suicidal tendencies! I´ve seen two people eating it and you can´t imagine the colour of their faces after ´Wasabi Tobiku´ has reached the taste buds."

Opened:Daily Lunch and Dinner
Reviews:"Only Hibachi table in town. Sushi Bar, Tempura"
"Dear Sushi World Guide: Loved your site, it was very useful. I just had to drop you a review for Shogun in New Orleans. New Orleans ranks with New York and San Francisco as America´s most diverse and sophisticated restaurant cities. New Orleans is known especially for specializing in Creole and French cuisine. However, it should also be known as the beneficiary of one of the most complete Japanese restaurants in the South. It not only houses the only hibachi bar in the city, but tantalizing sushi and sashimi. This slice of heaven is open all 7 days of the week! It does a tremendous volume of business insuring great turnover along with fish that is flown in from out of town. As a repeat customer, I whole heartily recommend the eel sushi, rainbow rolls and tuna (maguro). As far as cooked dishes, the gomoku ramon, hibachi rice and tempura squid are excellent. Enjoy!"
